Grass Valley develops the K-Frame V-series
Designed to address space limitations and reduce the complexities of today’s technical directors’ production workloads, Grass Valley developed the K-Frame V-series as an addition to the K-Frame family of production switchers. At only 3RU, this new frame is an ideal complement to the GV Korona switcher panel, according to the company. V-series, as part of the K-Frame family, can be used with any Grass Valley switcher panel and broadcasters can run multiple panels and shows off the same frame at the same time.
“Broadcast production has moved out of the studio to capture events where they are happening in real-time, but when it came to compact switchers, broadcasters were forced to choose: affordable, small or powerful. Never all three, until now,” said Neerav Shah, senior vice president of strategic marketing, Grass Valley. “The K-Frame V-series platform, when paired with the GV Korona switcher, offers a never-before-seen combination of power, flexibility and scalability, fitting well in locations where space is limited and providing the legendary Grass Valley high-end performance at an affordable price.”
On their own, the GV Korona 1 and 2 stripe panels support 15 and 20 assignable buttons, respectively, on each stripe (or M/E row), and have a built-in multi touch menu system, as well as a touchscreen in the transition area.
“Some of our most loyal customers have been with Grass Valley for decades, and we are committed to developing products that meet their every need so that they can use their Grass Valley solutions for any application. V-series is just another example of that commitment,” said Shah. Grass Valley is demonstrating the features of the GV Korona K-Frame V-series at NAB in booth SL106.
